Whether you’re planning a bridal shower for a friend, family member, or even yourself, there is a lot to do for everything to come out smoothly! If you want to make sure you have a stress-free day and really enjoy the party, follow this guide.
Having a theme for a party always makes it better, because you have a clear direction to go in. The best way to pick a theme is by thinking of a place, color, or activity that the bride loves. And from there, you can pick decorations, food, and drinks that match the theme.
After you have your theme, food is the next most important item on the list. A good way to come up with ideas if you’re not a chef is by doing miniature versions of classics, like sandwiches, quiches, etc. If you want to go above and beyond, only use the bride’s favorite foods!
Having a signature drink really brings the whole affair together. It’s also a lot easier to make a huge batch of one cocktail instead of having to buy a bunch of different mixers and liquors. To make it simple, pick a flavor or fruit juice the bride likes, pair it with a neutral liquor like vodka or even tequila, and throw in some fresh fruits or herbs! Have some sparkling wine or seltzer on the side to make it extra light and drink up!
